OK Go – Here It Goes Again

And she’s right, its hard to not want to watch it again…

If you need a little distraction from the work day, check out this great set of Sesame Street videos! I of course had to watch Mahna Mahna first off, and will have to save the rest for broadband at home… (via Lady Crumpet

  • Comments Off on Seth Interviews Lisa

lookingforward.gifSeth Kahan, one of our favorite storytellers, has a new interview posted with Lisa. In his email to one of the storytelling in business mailing lists announcing the posting of the interview he writes:

I interview Lisa Kimball on the subject of “liberating structures” in
the current issue of Looking Forward.

Lisa has been designing on-line learning events since before most of us knew the on-line world existed. She was a founding member of the Metasystems Design Group which began working with organizations such as Hewlett Packard, Merck, and the U.S. Army in the early 80s. The interview can also be read on the web, or downloaded for free, at

I thought for sure I’d found another excellent candidate for a “Weird Internet Sites” post when I stumbled across Hay in Art – “a collection of great works of hay” – while stalking Turner, but this three-year-old cyber-gallery by Alan Ritch of Santa Cruz, California, quite simply overwhelms any intent to ridicule with an astonishing range of lovely paintings and drawings (”currently 5,015 items in the database”) and a good dose of humour.

I saw this on Rocketboom this morning and had to share. It’s Narnia Rap Battle with a West Coast Response to SNL’s Narnia Rap
